The Masked Singer Group C championship began with a group number set to Jennifer Lopez’s hit “Let’s Get Loud,” and during the performance, there were plenty of bonus clues for viewers.
Instead of the regular clue packages, a person close to each contestant provided some key details into their celebrity alter-ego. Another surprising element that was incorporated into the onstage performances were the use of Legos.
The first solo performance of the night was Night Angel, who gave viewers an exciting rendition of the Isley Brothers’ “Shout.” The masked celebrity also went into the audience to dance and ended the performance on a strong note.
Arnett said Night Angel reminded him of Janet Jackson, but then guessed the famous person underneath the masked was former Blossom star Mayim Bialik.
Following Night Angel was Astronaut who sang Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You.” Jeong guessed that the space cadet was Eddie Vedder despite the few clues matching the mystery singer with the Pearl Jam rocker.
Next up was T-Rex, who performed A.R. Rahman and the Pussycat Dolls’ “Jail Ho! (You Are My Destiny)” from the movie Slumdog Millionaire.
Last to sing was Rhino, who sang Smokey Robinson and the Miracles’ “Track of My Tears.”
After all the performances of the night were over, it was time for the panelist and audience to vote on their favorite performances of the night. unfortunately, the one who was going to go extinct this time was T-Rex.
The masked singer behind the T-Rex was revealed to be YouTuber JoJo Siwa! Besides her insanely high energy on the stage, her clues related to the former Dance Moms star’s penchant for bows and pink were also a key marker. On tonight’s episodes, additional clues viewers saw were boomerangs and a huge pair of lips – Siwa’s song “Boomerang” is certified platinum and she hosted the Lip Sync Battle Shorties alongside Cannon.
Siwa will join other eliminated Masked Singer contestants so far: Robot, Llama, Miss Monster, Elephant, Mouse, Taco, Bear, and Swan.
The Masked Singer‘s Super Nine contestants are: Rhino, Night Angel, and Astronaut who will be joining White Tiger, Turtle, Frog, Kitty, Banana, and Kangaroo.
